Margaret Connell has been painting for 25 years Her painting is colourful and images of scenery faces and people with animals These paintings are whimsical and expressionistic also Still Life
I have been interested in Art from early childhood and her father encouraged my interests by giving Art books and trips to the gallery As a child I started doodling faces and have continued through out life and painted every so often It wasn’t until 25 years ago that I pursued painting seriously and took painting evening informal painting classes at Centralian College in Alice Springs and also did Print making classes there in the evenings While there two of my paintings were acquired by Centralian College and I had my first Solo exhibition at Araluen Gallery and sold a number of paintings including one to a German Tourist .While in Alice Springs I had two more exhibition ,one at the Art Shed and one at a restaurant and sold paintings at both of these . I moved to Broken Hill 20 years ago and took some art classes at TAFE and later did some first year Fine Art units through Curtin university I have had two sola exhibitions here One at the Butchers Shop Gallery and one at Broken Hill Gallery and sold paintings but only painted occasionally for a number of years Early last year I did an online course through Art2Life and this really stimulated my creative drive again Since this course I have painted most days and painting has truly become part of my life I have read widely and viewed work of many artists and this has influenced how I paint Inpaint colourful images of scenery and faces and human figures engage with animals and these tend to be whimsical but I do like doing still life and animal paintings too
